FALLS CHURCH, Va. (November 12, 2013) — In response to the recent devastation caused by the typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) will make a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross in an effort to aid recovery.
“AIHA is deeply saddened to learn about the deaths and destruction caused by the typhoon in the Philippines,” said AIHA President Barbara J. Dawson, CIH, CSP. “This disaster has affected us all, raising awareness of our connections as a global community and touching us deeply. We encourage our members to support the typhoon relief efforts by visiting our consumer information center where a list of agencies involved in rescue efforts has been made available.”
AIHA’s consumer information center has several resources available for workers to identify, manage and control the risks associated with storm recovery and cleanup. AIHA has also compiled information for industrial hygiene resources that relief agencies can refer to for advice and assistance.
Founded in 1939, the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is the premier association of occupational and environmental health and safety professionals. AIHA’s 10,000 members play a crucial role on the front line of worker health and safety every day. Members represent a cross-section of industry, private business, labor, government and academia.
